Creole White Bean Dip: Fast & Fabulous Party Food

Terri Pischoff Wuerthner

Serve this dip with baguette slices, Toasted Cayenne French Bread Slices , and/or raw vegetables. The dip may be served hot, warm, or at room temperature.

Kitchen Tool Tip: The bean dip may be pureed in a food processor, blender, or with an immersion blender.

An immersion blender is a relatively inexpensive and wonderful kitchen appliance. It allows the cook to simply place the immersion blender into a pot of soup, a bowl of dip, or any food that needs to be pureed--either slightly or to a smooth texture--and do the job without transferring the food to a blender or food processor.

A real time saver!

Yield: About 3 Cups

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 15-ounce cans white beans, drained
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, additional

Preparation:

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add the bell pepper and onion and sauté for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium, add the garlic and cook 3 minutes.

Add the broth to the pan and bring to a boil. Boil for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the spices and beans, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. 

Transfer to a food processor or blender (or transfer to a deep bowl and use an immersion blender) and process until smooth. Stir in the additional 2 tablespoons olive oil and transfer to a serving bowl.
